At Premier we offer professional and safe needles sweeps throughout properties and outside environments. Not only can we collect and dispose of needles, we also collect sharps including razor blades, scalpels and any other kind of biohazard objects and drug paraphernalia that we may encounter.
Where may this service be needed:
- Void Properties
- Drug Dens
- Outside Closes/Alleyways
Why use us?
A lot of people will try to pick up needles and just throw them away. Not only are you endangering yourself but also the poor person who will be collecting it after you have disposed of it. All sharps must be collect and stored in a sharps safe box. A single prick from a discarded needle can lead to infections such as HIV, Hep B, Hep C plus any kind of blood born pathogens.
On average it is thought that around 30% of Hepatitis B virus infections are caused by discarded syringes.
Be aware that not all needles will be visible to the naked eye. Users will have their own secret hiding places. In some cases they will leave booby traps which they will deliberately leave in place to cause harm. If you come across a needle there is every chance there will be more nearby.
Our services are suitable for housing associations, letting agents, landlords, police and prison services.
We are fully trained from the Nation Academy of Crime Scene Cleaners in the methods of sharp collection and safe ways of disposing and we have the correct waste removal licences.
